Gundog Journal

As Coronavirus triggers more and more restrictions on our movements Field Editor Ben Randall provides some expert advice on how you and your dogs can keep training within the confines of your own property. We also consult our extensive following to discover how they are planning on dealing with the crisis. And here’s the good news; in a neat piece of reciprocity it seems the more we help our dogs keep on top of their game, the more they will help us through this. 

Elsewhere in Vol II - Issue I, Double HPR Championship winner Darryl Elliot knows a thing or two about training German shorthaired pointers, and he shares some of his secrets. Picking-up guru Michelle Oseman is out in the field more than most during the season, and she has some great advice on what to do with the pack during the summer months. And in a question of sex Patrice Fellows investigates why some people prefer dogs and others opt for bitches; subjective but also fascinating.
